Sorry to complain, but the audio in this video goes from quiet to blasting and is annoying. If I wanted it to be loud, I would turn up my speakers, rather than having the person making the video, hi-jack control of my audio and blast audio whenever they feel like it. Thanks for making the review though.

Playing through Borderlands 1 GOTY at the min & can't put the game down. Truly one of the most addictive & best games iv'e played in a long time. Can't wait to get Borderlands 2.

+tech doge not particulary good weapons... i would say regulr weapons. Loots are randomized... the point is that you leve up... You get more health and loot gives you weapons of your level. So when  you'll go to story mission you'll be lvl 25 while enemies would be smth like 23 and it'll be much easier to play.

Prisoners could be sent to Mars, if they're condemned for life anyway. They're also used to being jailed in narrow spaces. Downside if they would be more likely to lose their temper. This would make a pretty good movie, at least!

I don't know if it's just me, but I just can't cope the tiny FoV & the technical issues such as the often times stuttery FpS. It makes the game unaccessable to me.

God I love loot. Its the best and worst feeling at the same time when you dont have enough inventory to fit all the loot you want.
Report spam or abuse
That happens to me all the time. It's so sad when you have to drop some weapons.

+David Eduardo just sell all the bad guns you have at every weapon/grenade/medic vending machine you find. This way you have max cash and free inventory space allways.

It's awesome! If you want to play this, get the game of the year edition. Beaten this game four times myself and the dlcs really add to that replayability

I didn't get the game of the year edition and I regret it. It's a lot cheaper than buying the DLC separately.

One of my best games of all time and highly underrated. The only reason this review has so many views is because of steam sales and ps plus....still, enjoy the game!

Been playing through it with my friend and to be honest, i don't think there is story.
Report spam or abuse
Honestly I think the first borderlands is better. Borderlands 2 may have more features, but I just thought that there was more emotion in the first one. The first Borderlands had better DLC included with it. I just thought the Borderlands 2 DLC was too short for a story. The main characters are bad in the Borderlands 1 DLC (other than moxxi) unlike the second.

+Peter Last bl1 dlc lasted about 3 days of gameplay so yeah

borderlands it's like halo
Report spam or abuse

Report spam or abuse
Boarderland's campaign mode is nothing like halo's.  Seriously?  I could make a gigantic list of how different the two games are but it's not worth my time. I can make a small list of broad similarities they have also... Like, you can jump, scope, the genre are both scifi (maybe). I mean, really to compare these is really stupid.

Get your pink glasses out of your eyes, people! Yes, it's fun and engaging and the hand-drawn style is awesome. I really liked the idea with weapon proficiency- gives some realism in the character development. But in it's core- it's very little. The game is only shooting, shooting, looting, more shooting, some driving and even more shooting. Warning! I haven't replayed Borderlands a second time and these statements are based on a play-through with the sniper (do I love blowing heads off), so I am probably missing some things. With that said, you can read on. I come from Diablo 2 and Fallout and I am missing a lot of things in this game. There is not much customization - weapons, shield, grenade types and additional passive bonuses are the only thing you can change. Diablo 2 and Fallout have different armor outfits, more types of weapons, weapon customization and crafting, allowing the player to spend some more time outside of combat preparing the gear. You have little to no customization here. Skills - Diablo 2 has some passive skills and the the other skills are new different types of attacks and spells, all grouped in skill trees. In Borderlands you have mostly passive bonuses, just like Fallout (but Diablo 2 sets the standard higher). Fallout has a stealth system, Borderlands has the potential for that- smaller and tighter areas scream stealth game play. The different guns- Diablo 1 (one) did it a long time ago. Diablo 2 has around 100 base weapons (the Paladin class can use the shields as weapons) and a lot more types of modifiers which can make for even more variations, without counting the armor variations and the exceptional and elite versions of ALL the gear. So, Borderlands needed more types of gear, more ways to customize the gear, non-passive skills, stealth and some crafting. All that combined with the fun gun play, and this is going to make one hell of a game.

8.8? This is an easy 10

IMO! Borderlands 2 was better for the Storyline and Skill Points! Other than that Borderlands 1 was better for shooting

I just got this game yesterday for my PS3 for $10 and played it for the first time right now...What were my first impressions?? AMAZING! Creative, fun, wow! I was so sick of linear FPS games like COD and Battlefield... the RPG elements on this game is extremely fun! and I really got into it! something that I really loved is the cartoonish graphics, its so unique! just gorgeous! I am definitely going to buy the second one sometime today...

Is this game still worth getting in 2014? I never played it when it came out but maybe I would try it now, but is it worth it? Did it aged well? Also, I guess nobody play online anymore?

Im playing it with a friend and its VERY fun to play. I suggest you the same thing

This game is what got me into Borderlands games. They give it 8.8 because of boring skills. Even one negative shouldn't drop the rate down that low. This game deserves a 9.5 out of 10. Boring skills Guess he never played Mordecai with the skill to ignore shields.

I feel like borderlands 2 was better than this but I feel like they dumbed down the shooting and made there be a few difficulty spikes to.

Dumbed down? You gotta be imagining things, it's very similar

Modern Warfare 3 does not deserve to be a Call of Duty game. It is a piece of sh*t attatched to the Modern Warfare 2 Engine. You'd think an explosive devise stuck to a guys chest would kill him....not leave you with a million hitmarkers, and don't get me started on servers.

For the people who are thinking about getting this game. I bought it last year, it's the best game i have ever played on the x360 along with Bully and Sleeping Dogs/Assassins Creed2. Campaign wise. Make sure to get tge GOTY Edition with all the DLC for 15$
